No one remembers how many shots you miss

January 11, 2010

In 1962, Philadelphia Warrior's Center Will Chamberlain scored 100 points in one basketball game.

100 points!

What's ironic is that no one remembers how many shots he missed that game. People only remember how many shots he made and how many points he scored.

When it comes to you and your leadership legacy, no one is going to remember how many times you failed.

People will remember you for what you created and what you did, not for what you failed to do.
